Cristo Redentore

The Cristo Redentore is a statue of Jesus Christ in Maratea, southern Italy, realized in Carrara’s marble in 1965 by Bruno Innocenti, a sculptor from Florence.

History

On 9 September 1963 the Piedmontese entrepreneur Stefano Rivetti announced that a giant statue would be raised, with his own money, on the top of mount San Biagio, as a tribute for Maratea’s population.

The construction of the statue began in the late 1963, and was finished in 1965.

Anche Maratea (PZ) ha il suo Cristo, ma lo scenario paesaggistico è a dir poco "divino". Godetevelo nei momenti dell'anno meno caotici, evitate l'estate se non potete farne a meno. La natura premia ;)

Vale la pena una visita per ammirare un panorama mozzafiato! Il parcheggio costa €5, che siano 10 min o 1 ora. Poi scatta 3€ ogni mezz'ora. Eccessivo! La navetta 1€ a testa, salita e discesa.

Per ammirare il Cristo bisogna lasciare la macchina in un parcheggio comunale e proseguire con una navetta (4€ x auto) x la statua ed il panorama offerto ne vale la pena!

Meraviglioso posto. La vista da quassù è splendida. Non ha nulla da invidiare a quello più famoso di Rio. Unica pecca, 4€ per il parcheggio e navetta mi sembra alquanto un furto!
